over. >> of course. let's see the mexican turkeys i dug a little deeper to find out -- >> that is me. >> you dug a little deeper to find out what the pilgrims served and got a thanksgiving lesson from the scientists at the con certificate venosi in montana. >> reporter: as you prepare to eat thanksgiving tonight, keep in mind the first all american meal probably doesn't look much like what you are serving today with this interesting look back at thanksgiving what it means and what it has meant is the lead scientist with the nature con certificate venosi. you have a spread in front of you that doesn't look like what i probably will be serving today. >> well, you recognize some of these things but might not recognize other things on this table. so we know that first table, set between the pilgrims and the native americans 400 years
ago had a lot of seafood we know they had shell fish probably fish like cod they also had venn son or deer or elk meat which i have some here as well as water foul probably duck or geese. other than that all these other foods here are native to north america and could very well have been at that first thanksgiving table >> i wouldn't say you would say turkey but i see it there. >> yes, turkey as it turns out is one of few birds domesticated, native to north america we know native americans hunted turkeys we don't have a lot of domesticated animals that come out of north america. turkeys are one of the few that come out of north america maybe one of the only ones and now worldwide. turkeys most likely made it to a table very early on in our history of thanksgiving we also know they would have had corn that was a big part of it as well as swash. a big part of native american
diets, onions, and some nuts like chestnuts and wall nets, beans as well as cranberries, which is kind of interesting. one of those few foods that comes all the way out from that first table to our table. >> somethings we enjoy i know i love sweet potatoes, maybe mashed potatoes that would have no place on the first thanksgiving table. >> potatoes didn't come to north america, until a hundred years after that when the pill pilgrims landed. as well as baked goods they didn't have the capability of cooking with wheat and no sugar with them, so nothing but molasses. >> no apple pie. >> no apples either. >> if we would like to incorporate these with our table to get back with our history what would you suggest
we do. >> well, if you live by the coast i suggest some seafood on your table and i also think cranberries, making them fresh is an easy thing to do but squash is a fantastic food good and healthy they would have eaten it simply baked there is a lot of squash you can bake. i think any of these foods you can put that on your table what i want people to do this thanksgiving whatever you have on your table understand it comes from nature and ideally put one thing on the table that is close to you. you don't want your food travelling further than your guests, so put one thing that reminds you that food really does come from nature. >> good reminder and a really good history lesson too. thank you so much happy thanksgiving to you and yours. >> absolutely and i would say if you want more information all hands on earth.org has lots of information on this stuff and lots of tips as well. >> no sweet potato pie. no apple pie. >> no potatoes. >> why bother.

military this thanksgiving. >> over to alison. >> matt thank you very much. this morning metro columnist for the washington post our friend robert mccartney released his second annual list of turkey's of the year awards. a thanksgiving roster of individuals and institutions whose screw ups and miss steps were of such magnitude they deserve to be publicly put through shame this morning he joins us to talk about who made the list this year. this is why i love you bob you put yourself on the list too. >> every year for some thing i screwed up. >> okay so it is an equal opportunity turkey list but let's look at this, first of all this is the second year what do you have to do, we talked a little bit, to get on bob mccartney's turkey list. >> be in the washington region because i write a metro column, has to be in our area and either something really self-
defeating, or foolish or incorn tent that is just so outrageous or self-damaging that it warrants inclusion. >> i hope for the year you can't find anybody to put on this list. >> i wish that were the case, looking forward, but i expect there will always be enough ineptitude around that i will have enough people to put on the list for the third annual one next year. >> my goal is always stay off this list let's talk about who is on the list now, will lead up to the number one turkey, leslie johnson made the list. >> the former prince georges county councilmember, wife of the disgraced former county executive jack johnson she made the list, jack johnson was number one turkey of the year last year for you know, asking his wife, while they listened on a wire tap, to ask his wife
to hide the bribe in her underwear. this year, she got on the list as i discussed on fox 5 she tried to hang on to her job as councilmember she didn't resign as i thought she should have after pleading guilty to a felony in federal court. >> that is not surprising this surprised me. dan schneider there was the hoopla about this article in the city paper it died down and skins were looking better and then it was like did we forgive schneider for his bone head moves but no, he is on the list. >> he made the list for filing the lawsuit any ways a lame lawsuit against the city paper and over reached, it was a liable lawsuit i thought it over reached in several ways but particularly because, he tried to get sympathy claiming the cover illustration on city paper was anti semimettic, it was a picture of dan schneider, scribbled, beard and horns looked like a child's version
of a devil. well, i quoted a local rabbi who said he didn't thing it was at all the article didn't mention that he was jewish he did with draw the suit on the eve of the football season, but just for filing it, for that anti semietic thing and other, you know, offences i put him on the list. >> kwame brown. >> the dc council chairman gets on the list of course, at a time of tight budgets and cut backs he asked tax payers to pay nearly $2,000 a month so he could have a fully loaded lincoln navigator sports utility vehicle and then had the gall to send it back when the seats weren't the right color. >> right. >> he did get rid of it in the end after much up roar but just for doing it in the first place. let's talk about why you made the list along with a virginia state senator. >> he got on the list because
he predicted definitively in august the democrats would retain control of the state senate he said it was over, we were a cinch to win it and now with the lieutenant governor breaking ties republicans have control of the state senate i put myself on the list as well because my predictions in that samovar gin yeah election just a few weeks ago were not that -- same, virginia election, were not that great. i under estimated, i hedged things because i am a journalist but i did indicate i thought the democrats, or republicans rather would get an out right majority, 21 seats and also under estimated the strength of the democratic endorsed candidate in the fairfax school board election. >> you put yourself on the list
too number one because there are many on here number one turkey of the year. >> mayor grey. >> oh, boy. >> i said in the column i hated to do it because i like the guy and i think he is trying to do his best but this first 11 months of his term has been such a dispointment all these hiring scandals beginning of the year he ran against you know fente's coneyism and the first thing that happens is the five adult children of top advisors and staffers are suddenly you know mysteriously on the dc payroll you know you can't get more croneyism than that and then the whole brown affair i had to make him number one. >> well, it is good reading, you know humorous but also serious you have more organizations on there including like the workers of the apple store who -- >> that was tragic the apple
store employees who didn't do anything when they heard poor jana murray being murdered next door. >> humorous but also full of good information and looks back at our year. >> that's right. >> the low lights. >> the low lights of the year. happy thanksgiving to you. >> happy thanksgiving alison. >> we will be right back

cancer survivals, dorothy hamill and scott hamilton are hosting who have both beaten cancer themselves. well, whether you are a seasoned chef or new to the kitchen thanksgiving can be intimidating that is why so many people call turkey and food safety hotlines i talked with the top government safety official about things you should know before popping that turkey into the oven today. we cook this big bird twice a year max and lots of things can go wrong, right? >> that's right you are cooking for probably more people than you are used to, it is probably a more complicated affair than you are used to having in your own home and it is easy to lose track of a couple simple steps to help you and your family safe for the holidays. >> you put out there is a psa put out kind of talking about what exactly, the time that you need to flip the bird, safe handling. >> right so food safe family's campaign we are on tv, radio, in print the four key steps are
clean, separate, cook and chill. >> okay. >> clean obviously you want clean utensils, wash your hands thoroughly, watch your surface thoroughly and frequently while cooking food. separate is important making these big meals, separating raw meat and poultry from fruits and vegetables that are uncooked and 165 is the safe temperature for poultry and also the safe temperature when reheating left overs and chill is another important one for big food holidays get left overs in the refrigerator within two hours of serving them. >> how long can we eat the left overs after thanksgiving? >> well, if they are refrigerated we say within 3 or 4 days, you can freeze them and obviously keep them longer or and you want to reheat them to 165 degrees. >> let me ask probably what will sound a silly question cleaning surfaces can we use
like i love bleach cleaner forever thing is that too strong? will that lead to other problems. >> it is not necessary a lot of people don't have those things in their kitchens we recommend warm or hot soapy water if you do want to take an extra step you can sanitize your cutting boards putting a table spoon overbleach in a gallon of water and using that to it. what about stuffing before it was the stuffing was cooked in the bird and then no, we get contamination what is the advice. >> you are right we don't recommend stuffing the bird only because it is a raw bird when you start and you are putting this food containing eggs and other raw ingredients inside it is hard to get it to a safe temperature if you are going to stuff the bird use a meat thermometer and measure the temperature of that stuffing as well. it will take you 30 minutes longer to cook a stuffed bird than unstuffed, the safest thing to do is put it in a as role and bake it in the --
casserole and bake it in your over outside. >> my mother does this i don't do this because of these restrictions i don't want someone sick on saturday there is an ap to make it easy. >> the first thing to do is go the food safety.gov it has every question and answer about safe food preparation we have a mobile ap, optimized for iphones and android users or go and ask your food safety questions there are a lot of already answered questions in that data base you can ask your own question 24 hours a day. >> dr. hagan says i can cook that bird. we h see. -- we will see. >> this is the under secretary for food safety with the usda happy thanksgiving. i am sure your mom is watching as she cooks for you. >> you know what can i tell you what happens i grew up we didn't eat any meat i was vegetarian the whole cooking of the big bird was not a part of our thing i am intimidated
putting a big bird thing in the own. >> my grandmother poured the grease on her one time and dot serious burns. >> while most of us here at home enjoy thanksgiving with our family, u.s. troops overseas are on the front lines of war. we will introduce you to one warrior in afghanistan doing it longer than the rest. >> i had the chance to chat with the stars of the big bang theory watch the hit comedy here on fox 5, what five days a week. that is what i was trying to say we will have that interview in 45 minutes, i mean every day, monday through friday. we will be right back this thursday and friday only,

the big bang theory is on five days a week we are fortunate to have the show week nights, here on fox 5 we are joined by mayim bialik she mays amy so the show was so popular we had to share it with another network can you tell us about the show for those who haven't seen it yet. >> um, this show is about two physicists a little bit of an
odd couple and they live next door to a pretty blond who is not a physicist and i guess the show has a widely expanded to include a lot of their nerdy friends in the case of me and melissa a few nerdy girlfriends as well. >> let's start with you melissa you play bern debt, howard's love interest can you tell us how the two of you get along and with a you talk about on a daily basis. sure well, howard started out on the show as a sleazy player and i just came on as one of his dates, and it was just supposed to be a one time thing and i think it came to be a little bit more and i joined the cast as now his fiance, and we are in the midst of wedding planning now which is really exciting and i think the big challenge with bern that debt and howard will be actually getting howard to move out of
his mothers house, but as in recent episodes bern debt is kind of cool with making things work within the walowitz household she is definitely getting two for the price of one. >> i like how that is put. >> mayim you play dr. amy but you have a doctorate in real life we feel like we grew up with you having started on blossom where we first fell in love can you tell us about playing sort of almost yourself but not really? it is a wonderful world tell us about dr. amy. >> yeah, my degree is in neuroscience so i like to say that it is easy for me to memorize hard words when you are trained to memorize them in grad school but socially what we are doing with amy is tapping into that uncharted territory about a lesson, both socially and also i guess intellectually she is trying to understand the world as an adult but hasn't really gone
through those teenage experiences so it is a lot of fun i mean to work with jim parson's specifically, he is a three time emmy winner just an amazing actor it has been amazing. >> the show does a good job of making smarts really funny also and quirky but still cool it is a nice mixture and sends a great message to young people too, young people of a certain age. >> sure yeah, i mean sort of it is also a show sort of about yosocial out casts or social misfits for young people especially, it would be great for it to be hip into physics again because it is super hip. >> let me finish with you, let me ask a quick question i know you took the time out to get a degree and advanced degree and have a family you are leading quite an interesting life. >> i am. it is busy but great. my husband is home, when i am working so that our boys have either one of us, and it is
thrilling i mean honestly to have the chance to be on a show again is unbelievable, but also to get to work with people not just saying because she is here but people like melissa it is a pleasant way to be an actor when you are with people you enjoy and doing work that may not be shakes speier and may not be -- shakespeare and may not be curing cancer but we enjoy making people laugh. >> melissa you as well as bernadette we will watch big bang theory every night at 7:30 p.m. on fox thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you ladies in many households, thanks giving is about family food and football if you are a red skins fan stay tuned up next more on the push to get washington's teams back in washington. then coming up next hour dcs first professional skate border joins us here in studio he has an amazing story, that you don't want to miss stay with us back in a moment xp
